I had a dear sister in Christ send me a comment that spoke to me strongly.
I believe I am to pass it on to you specifically for this rhema season. Thank you, Kelli, for sharing your anointed testimony. You have spoken loudly beloved!
God has convicted me! He said, indeed change of attitude and ministry go hand in hand.
Judgment begins with the house of God. If you are part of God’s house that means it begins with us first.
God is convicting our heart to get our focus back on Him and God’s order of things. Jesus is all about loving and forgiving and are we a part of Him?
We represent Him to the world. What pattern of life do you show and live out?
After restoration in our relationship with Jesus, then it is about our own home, and those who are family.
“Yet if any man suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begins with us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator,” 1 Peter 4:16-18 KJV.
It is easy to minister to those who don’t know us, or those who don’t see us often. God is showing me that many of us have estranged family members AND, that we need to prepare ourselves to be with them and to see them.
It is time beloved! For some of us, this will be the last time we see them. We must become active spiritually, pursing our family to bring restoration!
Kill them with kindness! Put to death the deeds of our flesh, and die to be kind and loving. A soft answer turns away wrath.
For some of us, the relationships won’t be healed except through prayer and fasting. AND Yes, we all have free choice and will, and some just won’t want Jesus.
However, we are talking about demonic influences in us and our family. Some will not go out but by prayer and fasting!
Unless we deal with the enemy in prayer and fasting, we won’t see breakthrough! It’s a serious thing beloved. They are part of our bloodline, and who knows, maybe you were raised up for such a time as this!
Don’t give up on yourself and your family! Mobilize in prayer and warfare against that chump the devil.
We’ve got the goods! We’ve got the power and we’ve got the edge! The two-edged sword!
None of us are perfect so why do we expect perfection in others?
It isn’t hopeless beloved, but we have a responsibility before God and we must put effort into the situation. Some of us have given up, but God told me today to NOT give up beloved!
There are strongholds that need to be broken and it can’t happen except through our prayer and fasting. Don’t give up on them beloved! God is giving you hope today; it isn’t over!
I am seriously sensing many of you are having anxiety about coming together with family for the holidays.
Through some serious seeking, God has to deal with us first. We must repent and through our prayers and fasting we can experience break through!
We must see this first in the Spirit and then it will manifest in the natural!
God gave me a vision for you and your family beloved! I see break through! But it will take some serious labor in fasting and prayer to break through the strongholds.
I would suggest that you give yourself, to continued prayer and fasting until your guest arrive or you arrive. Prepare yourself and watch what the LORD will do!
The spirit of rejection, self-pity, self-loathing, fear, doubt, unbelief, abandonment, the spirit of pride, the spirit of offense, the spirit of unforgiving, division, and bitterness are horrible spirits to abide and live with, and many of your families live with them day in and day out.
The people are miserable! These usually will pull away from everything and everyone that remind them of past sins and family pains and divisions from years ago.
Usually the strong man is PRIDE and it keeps them locked up with big thick walls with lock and key, so they won’t be hurt again!
All family issues and sins that have gone from one generation to the other are generational curses.
These must be broken and the works destroyed. Beloved, we have the goods! We have the power through prayers and fasting!
We must first bind pride in our own lives, and ask for forgiveness if we wounded them. The facade that is presented, doesn’t want anyone to see into their miserable life. And yet, they see no option or happiness in their future.
Beloved, unless we are dead to self in these situations, we won’t be of any help in cleansing the land in our family.
Ancient spirits have flooded down since Adam and Eve and unless we do the breaking and maintaining the ground we won’t be able to contain it.
We have a majorly huge opportunity! We have a tremendous ministry field in our own family and country to conquer!
Sure, we can flee from people, isolate ourselves, but we can’t run from those in our own home and family!
I really am convinced and convicted that this is going to be one of the best Christmas’s on record that we have ever experienced! We must do our part.
We are the chosen ones for our family to spearhead deliverance from the generational curses setting the captives free! God is willing, and He is asking you today; are you willing to be obedient and labor to bring sight for the blind and hope for their future?
God is dealing with many of us especially during this 2018 holiday season, because we will see family that maybe we are estranged from, or we are irritated, unforgiving, and bitter.
We that have the spiritual knowledge in the group hold the key to unlock those hidden in bondage! in our families!
We have the Spiritual responsibility in directing how the flow goes. Everywhere our feet go has been given to us to possess.
We are to take possession of the atmosphere and every demon will shut up and leave once you realize the power you have!
We have been Spiritually lazy, apathetic, and complacent too long! It is the time to possess and reap the harvest in our own house!
We shall obtain through fasting, prayer, forgiving, loving, releasing them and letting them go!
Whenever we go, or they come to our home, we are to speak words of life, love, kindness, being forgiving.
Even in the days gone by, and the sins done against us or to them are still as fresh as they were in the day the offense came.
We must forgive and reach out an olive branch in this season beloved; Regardless of their response. We must prepare ourselves like going to battle!
Why? Because we are! We must remember to represent how Jesus would treat them.
This fast and prayer can also be used and beneficial to help us win our family to God, and to prepare to offer ourselves to them in love.
Pray and Fast beloved of God! This is TRUTH! And this TRUTH will set you free and will be multiplied many times over!
What you do Spiritually will last throughout all eternity!
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
